Easter RecapPosted: April 25, 2011
Happy belated Easter, my friends! Whether you celebrate the day or not, I hope you had a great weekend :)
Mine was fantastic. It was filled with family, relaxation and a whole lotta food. It was wonderful! I think it’s perfectly acceptable to loosen the belt buckle and throw caution to the wind every now and then and just enjoy food. And that’s exactly what happened this weekend ;)
Don’t mind me. I’m a 23-year-old who still enjoys coloring eggs…
I’m also a 23-year-old who still gets excited about an Easter basket! :)
I think the Easter Bunny reads this blog and knows that I’m learning to bake ;)
Let me tell you something. Cory’s mom is the Hostess with the Mostest. She is the Detail Queen and I love it! I mean seriously. Look at the table settings she created.
Too cute right?
And the food was fabulous. I pulled the I’ll try a little bit of everything that’s on the table card.
Looking at this picture, I realize that this serving makes me seems quite anal. I’m swear I’m not a 5-year-old. I really don’t mind if my foods touch ;)
I also went to town on desserts. But let me just highlight my favorite. Enter: a ball of red velvet cake that was rolled in cheesecake, that was then rolled in graham cracker crumbs, that was then dipped in white chocolate. Heaven on a stick? I think so.
I’m certain I will be dreaming of these.
Cory didn’t want to keep a lot of the candy in our Easter basket, so guess who it came home with? This girl. Who has sticky fingers around sweets. I have to take precautionary measures when left alone with bags of candy.
I measure out serving sizes and put them in separate baggies so when I do want a little treat, I can grab and go.
Otherwise I will devour an entire bag of Starburst jellybeans in one sitting. And then I’ll try to convince myself that because they’re so tiny, they can’t possibly have any substantial caloric impact…
Let’s chat – What’s your favorite Easter candy? Starburst jellybeans. Duh.
